Limoncello Sunrise

Leave a comment

This was a particularly difficult month and week for me, so I decided that this week’s recipe should be a cocktail. I had quite a few cocktails and glasses of wine this month to get me through, but this one turned out nicer than I had expected. I used homemade limoncello, but any brand that you get from the store will do.

It’s a bit on the sweet side, so give it a taste. If you want to tone down the sweetness, add a little less o.j. and/or a bit more rum. It’s called “sunrise” because it looks like one of those types of drinks that are reminiscent of…well, sunrises. Little umbrella optional. :- ) Enjoy!Limoncello Sunrise

Limoncello Sunrise

1 ounce limoncello
1 ounce rum
4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice (~2 juicing oranges)
1 tablespoon grenadine or strawberry syrup
1 orange slice
¼ cup crushed ice or 1 or 2 cubes

Place ice in a tall glass. Add the limoncello, rum, and orange juice and mix. Pour in the grenadine or syrup and let it settle at the bottom. Garnish the glass with the orange.

Makes 1 cocktail.
